It’s podcast day!
This week, our hosts Becky and Mary are looking at how we can find joy in how God made us. When we gaze upon God and then see ourselves through His eyes, we can’t help but feel love and joy for the person He’s made us to be. That’s hard, though, right? So our brave hosts take some time to share how they’ve struggled to love the way the Lord made them — and how Scripture tells us that no matter how the world sees us, God looks at the heart.
They’re joined today by (in)courage contributor Lucretia Berry, who shares her own hard story about finding joy in the Lord and how He made her.
Once again, this episode ends with a Bible verse. This week, let’s read and remember Psalm 139:13-14:
For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made. Your works are wondrous, and I know this very well.

I loved the Pod cast. I know I am day late in replying because I was busy and only getting to listen to it now. But I know one things God see all people do. Saved or not saved. Words do hurt. How is when we are in Hospital not well we don’t care what skin colour the Doctor or Nurse has as long as they make us well. We can say nasty thing’s about people of all walks of life. More so people with Brown or Black skin. That not nice. God see all. As one good friend who is alot older than me said one time who is in Glory now. Bidden or not Bidden God see all we do and say. We have to give answer on day to God for everything we do. Unless we repent for our wrong. Like I was taught in Sunday School. Years ago when small. Theses two songs. They are so true for us as Adults today. One is “Jesus Loves all the Children Of The World Red and Yellow Black and White”. We are to do the same especially if Saved. Plus another song is ” Be careful little eyes what you see there is a Father up above who is watching,
Be careful little mouth what you say there is a Father up above who is watching” How true both songs are. I am white skin person. I was called names that hurt at School I never like that my parents sent me too for the last two years of Primary School. Because they thought they were doing me good. Because the classes were smaller. This day I didn’t want to join the game they were playing. They called me a nasty name. Then said don’t go near her. You catch that name they called me. I did not like going to that school. It was form of bullying. I years later had to get prayer for it and with God help he helped me forgive them. Now it doesn’t annoy me. But yes it did at the time. Today I never forget what happened at that school. It not nice. But that you incourage for what you shared in that Pod cast. The way you all shared your heart. I know God will make you stronger for sharing your stories. People should stop and think about their words. It doesn’t matter what the world think of us. It only Matters what God think of us. We are all beautiful in his eyes no matter what skin colour we have. Like these songs you get on YouTube. You get the “Father Love Letter” on YouTube. Just type it in and play it. It will tell you what our Heavenly Father thinks of us what he thinks of us is Just Amazing. Worth listening to. Remember this also the “Joy of the Lord is your strength” thank you again for sharing your heart all you. Keeping you in prayer all the way over here in Co. Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. God bless big hugs to all Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx
